Have you ever thought about bringing your dragon to the library? Don’t do it! You might have the best intentions, but that dragon will cause nothing but trouble. Using rhyming text and a diverse cast of characters, this charming picture book will provide some important — and some not so important — library etiquette in a very entertaining way.
I love the diversity of characters in the book, and there are lots of clever scenarios presented that showcase the beauties of libraries. I did find the repetition of the books catchphrase “Do NOT bring your dragon to the library.” a little annoying after a while, and some of the rhymes were a little awkward which tripped me up as a read-aloud, but overall it’s a cute concept!
I thought this book was cute and fun, but a little repetitive and long. The illustrations are great and I love that it talks about how fun the library can be with the reading time, singing time, and different books available. Plus, dragons are always a fun addition, in my opinion. :)
